part I (partII at: http://www.archive.org/details/RASAfm_165)
On 17th October 2008, a group of people thrown together by night, the faith in a free air for people's voices and the occasion of the Southern African Social Forum met in one hostel room in Mbabane in Swaziland. The group included members of the RASA radio collective and associated Joburg artist groups and activists form various social movements and arts movements. The clips presented here capture the night's conversation of a dozen odd people scattered over two hostel beds, introducing themselves and their work or organisations and talking RASA!
participants and their organisations: Imbaula Trust Frontline artists Indymedia (jhb) Fire on the Mountain Landless people's Movement (Gauteng) Anti-privatisation Forum Social Movements Indaba (Cape Town) NO-GO-ZONES audio radio project radio continental drift Centre for Civil Society tbc.
We are broadcasting these recordings here to continue and to open up the conversation to all listeners out there wishing to contribute and join that nights debate: how to continue RASA?
